RobbinHood Ransomware – How does RobbinHood work?

robbinhood ransomware

Ransomware typically uses a vulnerability in the web browser or operating system to infect the victim’s target system. However, there are always exceptions where malware looks for a rather atypical “gateway”. So also in the case of the ransomware RobbinHood.

AMD 3990X Threadripper Benchmark destroys Intel processor

AMD 3990X Threadripper Benchmark

The AMD Threadripper 3990X is presented as the processor with the largest number of cores and process threads in the market, being, therefore, intended for those users or companies that are going to carry out work in which a greater capacity for parallelism prevails over other considerations economic. It is, therefore, a processor specially designed to work with it and not so much intended to play with it since, for that segment of the market, AMD already has its Ryzen desktop range.

Coronavirus reaches Samsung and Foxconn factories in China

Coronavirus

Some of the latest news that comes to us from China seems like science fiction, but nothing is further from reality. The Coronavirus is an issue that is causing worldwide concern, and whose tentacles and have also affected even the hardware, not by infection but because the Chinese government has ordered the closure of factories important as those of Samsung and Foxconn, which will to produce without a doubt a rise in prices.

Core i9-10900K benchmark show disappointing results

Core i9-10900K benchmark

With each passing day, we see new evidence that Intel is preparing to launch its tenth generation of Core processors. The next generation Z490 boards continue to see the light, and the list of processors that Intel has in the oven has been known for weeks. However, a new filtered benchmark of a Core i9-10900K shows that this processor, top of the range generation, will be slower than previously thought.

Microsoft Surface Book 3 with NVIDIA Max-Q graphics confirmed

It is not common to find equipment that is designed, in theory, to work, with dedicated graphics cards that can turn the equipment into "something else." A new benchmark that has been leaked shows the next Microsoft Surface Book 3 convertible equipped with NVIDIA Max-Q graphics, and also with two different versions.  Certainly, it has been quite strange that Microsoft did not reveal its new Surface Book 3 in the last events - or first - of the year, but fortunately that does not mean that the company does not already have it in the spotlight. It is confirmed by the latest leaked benchmarks, which show us an advance of the hardware and the specifications that this equipment will have and that, really, are promising.  Certainly, the hardware of the Surface family has become quite obsolete in recent times, and it seems that Microsoft has a hard time adopting the new generations of hardware that have been released.  However, it seems that now Microsoft is going to change the rules of the game because according to the benchmarks that we are going to show you below, Microsoft has provided its next convertible with a next-generation hardware that includes tenth-generation Intel Core processors and NVIDIA Max-Q graphics, with two options at the user's choice that include a GTX 1650 and a GTX 1660 Ti, both in its Max-Q variant.  Unfortunately, it seems that we cannot count on high-end Intel tenth-generation processors (those of 45W of TDP), but we will have to settle for low-consumption options. Among the processors available on the Surface Book 3 are a 1.30 GHz quad-core Core i7-1065G7 and a 15-watt TDP, but Microsoft is expected to decide to increase the configurable TDP range to at least 25 watts to improve (quite ) machine performance.  It is noteworthy that it is strange that none of these potential specifications include AMD Ryzen processors, especially considering the improvements proposed by the company with the Ryzen 4000 family and that already made us think almost everyone that Microsoft and AMD were going to associate once more, just as they did with the Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 family of products.  In any case, and given that these specifications of the Surface Book 3 have appeared just a few hours ago, it certainly means that Microsoft is already planning the launch of these computers. After all, Apple's 16-inch MacBook Pro needs decent competition in the market but in Windows, although it is true that with the Intel processor that in theory they will equip, little competition in terms of performance is going to find Apple (reason for more to rethink AMD and its Ryzen 4000).
